You probably already know that eating well is an important part of living a healthy life, but did you know that this is even more important when you have psoriasis?

With so many options out there, how do you know which to choose? To answer that question, it’s best to start at the source: inflammation.

As you may know, psoriasis is believed to be caused by an overactive immune system triggering inflammation.

Just remember, not every anti-inflammatory food has the same effect on every person with psoriasis. And a dietary change can never replace a treatment plan your doctor has prescribed. While taking proactive steps in your diet can be a part of a healthy lifestyle,it’s best to consult with your dermatologist before making changes to your diet or adding a supplement.
